Bullet Proof Coffee Liver? (BPC trifecta in play)

Asked on January 11, 2015
Created November 14, 2012 at 12:52 PM

Ok I saw 2 other BPC related threads pop up so what the heck this one is probably new...

Despite the title I am not putting liver in my bulletproof coffee, but I am getting it closer in terms of fat-soluble vitamin/mineral content - I just started dropping vit D3, copper, and K2 tablets into the blender with the butter (probably should throw some A from palmitate in there too), and some liquid CoQ10 as well. Anyone else try this? I believe I got an extra dopamine rush by noon on the first day...

Which brings up a separate question - supposedly one doesn't eat proteins that have to be liver processed, as it destroys the use of BPC for extending a fast. However, if someone takes supplements in the morning, does the usual amount (say up to 5mg worth) destroy the fasting portion?

Good question on phytic acid hopefully someone who knows can respond... otherwise any supplements I take in the morning one way or the other are at risk...at least for minerals, but possibly other things...

Interesting idea for sure. Hopefully someone who really knows the chemistry of this will answer for you.

I normally took my supplements at the same time as well, but I tried the blender with the supplements to maximize dissolving of the nutrients into the oils. I was worried that the hard-pill form of D3 and copper might not get broken down quickly within a load of water and fats, and wanted the absorption to be consistent within that load...

I have no answer to this question but liver + coffee sounds vile. Does the phytic acid in the coffee bind to the minerals in the liver? Wouldn't that negate the benefit of combining the two?

man, we're getting pretty far away from whole foods, are we not? if that's your thing, bottoms up.

Well I don't mix them in but shortly after drinking my BPC with 4 tbsp butter and 3 tbsp MCT oil, I do take my D3, K, Iodine, and Selenium supplements. I haven't noticed any issues with doing this and I really want the A(from the butter), D, and K magic combo together for bones and teeth.

Honestly I don't really know how effective the fasting is with BPC so I really have no idea how the supplements affect it. I wish there was a way to measure autophagy.
